this was an ongoing situation to talk to the american people, it's something that president obama learned from george bush's mistakes after 9/11. >> we've gotten more resilient. one of the things that's changed after 9/11 all the tools, prosecutorial tools that we told the bush administration to go out and again. the public is very comfortable with. they're resilience is great. but we're much more comfortable with being surveiled. chris: aren't you amazed that we are? >> we forget about it. chris: we have surveillance camera across the street? >> i believe everywhere you go in a major city like new york city, you need to assume you're on some kind of a camera. >> we have not been aware of that. we are learning. chris: your paper by the way, reported this week that every second of the finish line of that, every square inch of that territory is on somebody's cell phone and they're going to accumulate it. >> and there's no privacy. let's face it. maybe that's going to be a warning to any group or individuals who want to do something like this. they are watching you. they may be watching you in your own

>> this week, both weekly addresses focused on the boston marathon bombings. first president obama, then the republican address by senator tim scott of south carolina. on monday, an act of terror killed and injured people at the boston marathon. but americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately that's what we'll remember from this week. the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity and love. the brave first responders, police officers and firefighters, the e.m.t.'s and national guard, who ran toward danger to help their fellow citizens. the race volunteers, spectators and exhausted runners who rushed to help, including troops and veterans who never expected to see such scenes on the streets of america. the determined doctors and nurses at some of the world's best hospitals who toiled day and night to save so many lives. the big hearted people of boston. residents, priests, shopkeepers, who carried victims in their arms and delivered water and blankets, lined up to give blood, opened their homes up to total strangers. and the heroic federal agents and poli
offer the boston marathon participants an tun to cross a finish line at halftime. >> president obama used his weekly address to tell americans to praise the city of boston for standing strong in the face of last week's bombings. >> if anyone wants to know who we are? what america is? how we respond to evil and terror? that is it. severallessly, compassionately and unafraid. >> president and police obama attended a memorial service in boston on thursday for the bombing victims. in this morning's dress the president said "boston's unwaivering spirit remained undaunted in the face of terror." the president told the people of boston the rest of the nation is with them in their time of trouble. >>> here in the bay area love and support is pouring in for a martinez boy who was wounded in the boston bombings. ktvu's john sasaki shows us how friends and neighbors are raising money for aaron hern. >> reporter: it was a great day for a work in briones park, but this day was about photography for a good cause. >> oh, pretty. >> it's a great family and we just want to help them out. >> nico
are americans right here on our own soil? >>> should the government decide how much you're allowed to save for retirement? you're not going to believe what's hidden in president obama's budget proposal. >>> and gold, what a wild ride this past week, plunging 10% in one day. is it still a safe place to invest your money? >>> security washington, new york, and major cities after the bombings at the boston marathon. the question is, have we as americans become complacent about our national security? how safe are we from terror attacks on our own soil? earlier this week i spoke with the former head of the cia's bin laden unit. where do you, on a scale of 1 to 100, 100% there's no way you can be 100% safe. are we 99% safe? are we 10% sa? what's your estimate? >> you know, i would say probably we're 50% or 60% on the safe side. i think there is a -- the growth, especially if we're talking about the islamic world, of people who want to attack us here in the united states, has grown significaly. as has the animosity of parts of our muslim population here in the united states. we're not immune to w
think mitt romney lostsome. >> guest: because if you look at exit polling, most americans believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh o
. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew about nidal malik hasan
for victims of the bombing and for the entire city. president obama spoke at an interfaith service thursday boston's cathedral of the holy cross. >> you've shown us, boston. that in the face of evil, americans will lift up what's good. in the face of cruelty, we will choose compassion. >> we have more on religious responses in boston. ♪ ♪ >> at thursday's interfaith service, local religious leaders prayed for the healing of their city in the wake of the attks. >> we must overcome the culture of death by promoting a culture of life. a profound respect for each and every human being made in the image and likeness of god. we must cultivate a desire to give our lives to the service of others. >> within moments of the bombing, clergy and faith-based groups mobilize to do what they could to help. as victims of the bombing were brought to tufts medical center, interfaith chaplain mary lou was on site to offer counseling and prayer. she said one injured woman expressed what many were feeling. >> she said the hardest thing about this is, that some human being can treat other human beings like th
is an african-american are. th did not happen by itself and it is not herman. they did not give mr. obama and the first lady the deed to the white house. they give them a four-year lease. [laughter] they will have to leave area and what will happen between now and then and what will happen after they are gone. we need to be guided by guys that help make that possible -- by those that helped make that possible. we need to use this window of time properly. if we relax and act like the struggle is over, we will end up worse than it was before we started. [applause] would like each of you to take two minutes to tell us where you see where we are and where we are generally headed. i just want an overview from then i want to go to our legends. >> thank you very much. to the pastor of the church, great to be in uniform -- in this beautiful place this morning. [applause] reverend al sharpton, another big round of applause [applause] friendship andis my colleagues on the panel, i am the brother in the middle. and to the legends over on my left and you're right. i want to join in saying thank you t
. >> i'm not sure i agree with the premise that it's a big defeat for president obama. clearly, it's something he wanted to happen, chris. i think he never had it on his agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened, there was a sudden shift in terms of the polls, american public opinion, and people said, we need to do something. we can't have small children slaughtered in an i dyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody. the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation, and as congresswoman harman pointed out, this was a compromise legislation. this was no hard line. the question becomes, should they have not ever focused on assault weapons? should they have never focused on high capacity magazines? did that waste time? should the president have acted more quickly in the wake of newtown to get this done? these are all tactical measures. as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, said this week, if you have 90% of the american people and 80% of republicans s
, like mr. leahy and all the people on the democratic side. the thing because of president obama's direct this involvement with black americans and jobs and his abandonment of us, do you think that there could be a backlash in the 2014 election, where the 93% or the portion of the 93% of the people that voted for him in the election would deny him the president of gaining the house? there is this message a foot in the black community, because we know that he has not done anything for black americans. thank you so much for taking my call. i love c-span. host: thank you for your call and comments. guest: >> on one hand you have the argument, people saying if you give a pathway to citizenship, they are going to take jobs away from people who should be able to have those jobs. the counter argument is, these people are often working jobs that others would not want or be able to have. that is a tricky situation. it is very interesting and theking how, despite unemployment rate that is a little under 8%, we have now seen some polling with leaders on capitol hill, all the stars seem to line to ad
. >> i definitely agree 100% with what president obama said. you know, it's -- but it really wasn't something about the marathon. it was more of a spirit of the american people and the way we are. and he made that very clear. i think boston, the oldest marathon in the world, we want to keep it going. nothing will ever stop it, i don't think. and we're going to have a great day in boston next year. >> where were you when you heard about it? >> i was actually at home with my girlfriend, karen. we had gone for a run. but my daughter d
school of thought. when barack obama talk body fundmentally changing the united states of america, this is what he was talking about. it is changing the narrative from one of american exceptionalism personal responsibility to a american asist -- racist and serving the white manner class. >> is it terrorist to say you hope it is a white person. >> no, that only goes one way. a leftist can project his own racism and get away with it if andrew brightbar was alive today he would have died laughing reading the comum . you might have a photoof david sarota throwing a jab . i think brightbar was great. he found there nothing funnier, that is amazing. there is nothing funnier than someone who takes themselves seriously. no one would pick that picture. it plays off an anti-american sentiment. sirota believes that america can't handle anything but a white terrorist and somehow be thrown in a wild back lash and go burning buildings and invading countryings. it -- countries. that is entirely opposite of how andrew lived life. >> to follow up. andrew brightbar was a pioneer in citizen journali
in the united states senate. look at the congress agriculture rating, 79 percent of americans say congress does not work. they are not -- they do not have the feeling about president obama. >>chris: so, not a big defeat for president obama? >> of course it is. he went around the country and on wednesday night he had a meltdown in the rose garden because the senators actually voted the way they felt was the right way to vote is there a serious public policy argument for background checks --. >> the farrents of newtown want something done. >> i have the greatest empathy for the parents but they never made a public policy argument for the bill. >> the policy argument is so clear we should not have easy access to guns people who have criminal records or people with any kind record or who are many tale comp at this . should not be allowed to get it. we see in newtown but each day in the streets of washington, dc, chicago, new york, a slaughter because we will not do anything. >> we have the tightest gun control legislation. >> the guns come from places with lax gun control legislation. >>chris: i wi
compound. afghanistan, while the surge was going on, over 100,000 american troops on the ground, joined saudi arabia as the only other country in the world that became so intolerant they did not have a single church. the obama administration knew about it and actually reported about in the state department religious freedom, which is still the gold standard for human rights reporting. but at the time it was happening they said nothing and did nothing. so on our watch this has happened. the bush administration, two-thirds of the christians in iraq were driven out. we have it in the book about conversations we had about secretary rice at the time saying please protecting. again, we had 100,000 troops on thground and she said no, we cannot get involved. it's sectarian here. meanwhile, the united states had just installed a shiite government in iraq and was negotiating on the path of sunni leaders to get sunni appointments in the government. so it just rang true. >> it does seem as i listen because i'm being educated on this, some rights are more equal than others, right? in other words, if
the american academy of orthopaedic surgeons. >>> we are talking to senator ted cruz. it interrupted you. i apologize for that. if you will, sir. >> guest: sure, i was say that unfortunately the obama administration has not made a priority to prosecute those felons with guns. 15,000 felons and funneltives tried to purchase a gun and were turned down. they prosecuted just 44. let me repeat the numbers of the ot 156,000 fe lops and fumetives illegally trying to purchase autobahn, the obama justice department only prosecuted 44. i am introducing legislation to create a task force in department of justice. we need to prosecute violent felons and fugitives to go after them and protect ourselves against violent crime. we shouldn't strip away the right to bear arm of lawful, peaceful citizens. >> lou: senator reid, the majority leader called for a cloture vote at 11:00 tomorrow morning. you and a number of your colleagues have also said you will filibuster should the need arise. is it your sense that the need will arise? are you committed to a fill buster? >> what i think is critical, is that for
. ♪ >>> at this time next year, on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city to run harder than ever and to cheer even louder for the 118th boston marathon! bet on it. >> president obama, thursday, thoughts echoed by mayor menino today. >>> let's take more about where we go next? with our roundtable. chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz, richard haass and the editor of "the new yorker" david remnick. senator, and the congressman, let me begin with you, whether the subject should be read his miranda rights or enemy cobah abouts. also, the fact that his travel back to his hometown, that was a muslim area, could have been radicalized -- >> that was his brother. >> that was his brother, though, that's correct. we're talking about the two of them together, as to what happened and why it happened. and i think, we got to keep that option open until we find out whether or not there was a connection to the terrorist organization. >> do you agree? >> i'll agree, there is no question. the public safety exception is that we should utilize and that we should get all
? >> yes. a problem for the obama administration but didn't begin just with the obama administration. going back even to the nixon administration we have american administrations that soft petal arab terror, arab islamic terror and cover up for it. you know that the 9/11 bombers one of the reasons they were able the get on board was because there was a rule against profiling. it came up in 9/11 commission. the former secretary of the navy talked about it. the fact they were only allowed to ask two people on each flight if they were arab, two people if they were black, two people if they were white, various categories. that's how they got on the plane. this is a real problem. we shouldn't be worried about giving offense to terrorists, we should take the offense against terrorists. >> tucker: the idea, then, apparently is by giving offense we invite more terror attacks, in other words it's our fault. our bias draws the attack. isn't that the underpinning of the world view? >> this is like the battered women's sib drome. somebody rapes you because you are too attractive? that is not the reason
that it's a big defeat for president obama. he's something he wanted to happen but i think he never had it on the agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened there was a shift in the polls, the american public opinion. people said we need to do something that you can have the small children slaughtered in idyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now, and i think the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody? i mean the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation. congressman harman pointed out this was no some promize legislation. this was a hard line. so should they have never focused on assault weapon or high capacity magazine? did it waste time? should the president acted more quickly in the aftermath of newtown to get it done? those are tactical measures. but the thing is, as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate said this week, when you have 90% of the american people, and 80% of republicans saying okay, background checks are a good idea. we like that. the senate still can't get it done, the emphasi
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly

. so it's also the perceived threat from pakistan inside the obama administration receded, and so people move to yemen, and so after that 2011 time frame, which was really the sort of the nadir relationship of the u.s.-pakistan, the members of american undercover officers i think has gone down significantly. >> how many of the paramilitary groups spoke of earlier are in pakistan? how are they funded? how significant are they? >> the american -- >> no, the pakistan side. >> well, so if you, this is another subject of dispute. the pakistani government has, you know, denies that it does -- has any support, and i think there is legitimate concern while there was once support for these troops that were used as a force for india, have carried out attacks inside pakistan, and so whether it's the pakistani pal ban rather than the afghan taliban which is what is known, they carry out on pakistani soil so i think there is this fear among pakistani security officials that this monster's been created that has, to some degree, gone back on its creator and hurt and killed thousands and thousand
